‘More Powerful Than I Imagined’: ‘Deranged’ Trump Pummeled for Lying ‘Practicing Catholic’ Joe Biden Will ‘Hurt God’



President Donald Trump used a supposedly non-political event Thursday afternoon to attack his Democratic opponent with a lie, saying former Vice President Joe Biden will “hurt God” if elected.

In the strange pronouncement on the tarmac in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump falsely claimed that Biden will “take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy.”

Many were quick to criticize the President for his obvious lies, which come just one day after Trump was accused of “anti-religious bigotry” after his campaign promoted its anti-Biden attack ad showing the former VP praying.

Here’s what some are saying today about Trump’s latest lies.

Trump Cabinet Secretaries Discussing Invoking 25th Amendment to Remove President: Report



CBS News is reporting U.S. Cabinet Secretaries are discussing using the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Margaret Brennan, the “Face the Nation” moderator and CBS News’ Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent broke the news.

“What is being discussed, whispered about, by some Cabinet Members today,” Brennan said on-air (video below) Wednesday night, “and that is whether to move forward with formal proceedings to try to invoke the 25th Amendment. That would allow for the removal of President Trump from office and for Mike Pence to effectively become Commander-in-Chief.”

She cautions the proposal has not been presented to Pence.

“This is not about to happen, it is, however, being discussed.”

“I’m talking about actual members of the Cabinet,” Brennan added.

The news comes as President Trump supported a deadly violent coup attempt that included sending armed insurrectionists to breach the U.S. Capitol building, which they succeeded Wednesday. Trump in a video now removed from Twitter and Facebook told the right wing domestic terrorists, “we love you.”

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman adds President Trump has “lost it.”

Trump Spins New Wild Conspiracy Theory: Biden Controlled by ‘People in the Dark Shadows’ That ‘You’ve Never Heard Of’



In an off-the-rails interview Monday President Donald Trump spun a new, wild conspiracy theory in an attempt to paint his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, as being controlled by “thugs” and “people in the dark shadows.”

“Who do you think is pulling Biden’s strings?” Fox News host Laura Ingraham asked President Trump, as if the former vice president isn’t charting his own course – a familiar yet false Fox News and GOP talking point.

“People that you’ve never heard of, people that are in the dark shadows –” Trump said, only to have Ingraham interject, admitting, “that sounds like conspiracy theory.”

“No, they’re people that you haven’t heard of, they’re people that are on the streets, they’re people that are controlling the streets. We had somebody get on a plane from a certain city this weekend. And in the plane it was almost completely loaded with with thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that.”

Asked where, Trump continued to spin.

“I’ll tell you sometime but it’s under investigation right now, but they came from a certain city, and this person was coming to the Republican National Convention. And they were like seven people on the plane like this person, and then a lot of people were on the plane to do big damage,” Trump claimed, suggesting the RNC was targeted.

“This was all this is all happening, and money is coming from some very stupid rich people that have no idea that if their thing ever succeeded, which had won’t, they will be thrown to the wolves like –”

Also in that interview Trump compared the shooting of unarmed Americans by police to golfers choking on a three-foot putt.
